Behind every good animal is a BREEDER. I’m using capital letters to differentiate a good breeder from a production factory or a backyard breeder. When you select to buy an animal from a reputable and quality breeder, this breeder is responsible for the health of every animal; both animals owned and every baby they’ve sold for its lifetime. The truly passionate breeder who loves what they breed, puts their whole heart and soul into it. Not only in babies that are sold, but also in each client who owns a piece of their heart and now is a member of their extended family. This does not take into account any animal who might get sick or need extra help to thrive. Breeders worry about their babies after they leave and will take one back without question.
